Hooked: Homer Schultz’s 1993 Peterbilt 379 wrecker

Homer's Hook
Schultz’ Pete is powered by a 430-hp Detroit Series 60 engine and has strapless air cleaners with billet screens, custom visor, Street Rod headlights, custom-built headache rack and custom fenders.

Homer Schultz III and his Homer’s Custom Chrome Shop spawned from his grandfather’s — subsequently his father’s, then his own — Homer’s Towing and Service. The shop churned out this 1993 Peterbilt 379 a few years back to serve as Homer III’s personal full-time working rig.

Though it’s also a part-time truck showgoer, Schultz uses the Pete for somewhere between three and eight jobs a day, towing other trucks.

He and his crew of 15 began the build in 2005, and it’s seen work on nearly every square inch, anchored by African Rosewood flooring and a blue marbleized dash on the interior and a stretched 312-inch wheelbase, concord blue paint job, flip bumper, Jones hood and lots of other exterior accessories.

Here’s a full gallery of Homer’s 379:

Because all of the tow work done with the truck is basically out and back, Schultz turned the sleeper into an entertainment center with a 26-inch television, custom-built speaker boxes, three amps, 12 speakers and a 15-inch subwoofer.

    REALLY nice truck,but I’d never build a truck like that-I’d kill myself if I ever whanged anything on it. (And in my world,work trucks always run the risk of “whangs”.)
